The best way to understand Disney World is to study it thoroughly. This means read all about it. Not when you arrive in The World, but way ahead of time. The more one understands the dynamics of Disneyworld, the more you will appreciate it. A good understanding of the inner workings of The World will give you an advantage over the uninformed traveller. You will recognize them as the people that look permanetly confused and angry, since nothing seems to go their way. Study the World and the World will lay at your feet, and you will truly be the King (or Queen) of the Kingdom!
